After years of staying quiet publicly as she attempted to have her father, Jamie Spears, removed from her conservatorship, Britney Spears has spent the last several weeks finally speaking out and letting everyone know just how harsh she feels her dad's treatment of her has been. Her words shocked many, and prompted a response from some of her other family members, including younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears. That's led to a furious back-and-forth social media feud between the siblings, and now the fighting between Britney and Jamie Lynn has escalated even further.
Even if you weren't as surprised as so many people were a few weeks ago when Britney Spears spoke in court about her conservatorship and compared it "sex trafficking" among other horrible claims, you will probably still be shocked at what's been going on with the embattled singer and her little sister. Spears now has more control over her Instagram account and, earlier this month, called out those she “loves the most” for only showing support for her now, when the public finally knows what she's been allegedly going through. This has caused a string of posts aimed at one another between the sisters, with Jamie Lynn editing several captions (via BuzzFeed) once her older sibling responds. Now, it's happened again.
One of the things the public has begun to wonder about in recent weeks is who, exactly, in Spears' family benefits from her conservatorship, aside from her father. Jamie Lynn Spears opened up on her own Instagram account, denying allegations that she has claimed to own a large condo in Florida that was actually bought with Britney Spears' money, in a caption on a series of photos showing her family on vacation. But, after Britney's fans called her out, Jamie Lynn edited her caption to remove the denial.
So, why would Jamie Lynn Spears remove her denial that she claims as her own / benefits from any property that her elder sister paid for? Well, it would seem that the Sweet Magnolias Season 1 cast member has made references to this particular home in the past on social media, with #FreeBritney fans pointing out that she's previously said it was hers or belonged to the Spears brood as a unit.
According to The Sun, tax records that note Britney Spears bought a Destin, FL condo in 2001 with her own money, well before the conservatorship was in place. Seeing as how the outlet could find no similar records that list any property in the area under Jamie Lynn Spears' name, it's likely that the condo owned by Britney is the same one that Jamie Lynn has referred to over the years.
So, despite her original Instagram assertion that she doesn’t "own a condo, and I can assure you that no one has ever bought me a place at the beach, because I prefer my beach vacations at the Ritz anyway," it does sound a lot like Jamie Lynn Spears has at least benefited from Britney Spears' purchase over the years, if not outright taken it over for her own use.
With how the public fight between Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears has heated up recently (as with everything to do with the conservatorship battle), we will probably be hearing a lot more about this in the weeks to come.
